# Speed formula

Math question:

What is the speed formula for an object moving or looping from start angle point in the triangle to the next angle. I want to minimize this object drift outside the angle points when it turn and maximize also speed to reach next angle.

I donâ€™t precisely understand the question, without more data the answer to what I THINK youâ€™re asking is anything from instantaneous to never occurring.

triangle like this

is it possible that there is a formula calculate speed from moving from one angle to another ?

What speed is your particle capable of moving? Does it have a maximum angular acceleration?

If you have no further data, then i can say the answer is infinite. Without limits of acceleration or speed, the object could move instantaneously from one point to the next.

Youâ€™re asking for a formula for which the answer depends on the formula.

acceleration range from 0 to 100 but if the object for example a car enter an angle at high speed for example 100 it will drift for long distance before it turn again to next angle. It is like a car race

I know the three distance of the triangle and values of the angles.

but you dont know the drift properties of the car.
Whatâ€™s â€śhigh speedâ€ť? At what point does it begin to cause drift? At what rate can the car rotate?

Youâ€™ve got too many missing variables to come up with an answer.

speed is between 0 and 100 and it begin drifting and turn once this object x,y touch the angle

no other information however thanks for looking into this.

There simply isnt a Y = X formula for what youâ€™re asking about. The speed of the object will change constantly; what I assume youâ€™re trying to find is a fomula for time, rather than speed, but again, without knowing the calcuations/routes and costs to speed of the driftâ€¦ shrug

m_hutley thanks alot it was competition in coding and I am not good in math however I appreciate you took time on this.

check this out , maybe it you will make you find fun and maybe better job

Speed = distance/time
Velocity takes account of direction travelled, so may be more relevant to the above situation.
But as m_hutley says, the information you have given is insufficient to answer your question.
Also, note that acceleration is a rate of change of velocity (eg metres per second squared in a specific direction), not velocity (eg metres per second in a specific direction).
